In this video, Down On The Farm checks out the new advancements in vertical farming. Cities are heavily reliant on imported food to survive. Be it from the countryside that surrounds it or from other countries hundreds or even thousands of miles away.

Vertical farming, as the name suggests, is a form of agriculture that is specifically designed to facilitate agricultural production inside vertical structures like buildings. Large-scale versions tend to consist of a series of vertically stacked surfaces that are usually, though not always, integrated into existing buildings, like office blocks.
